The Service Boot is an updated interpretation of Viberg's original work boot, designed by founder Edwin Viberg in 1931. A similar pattern was used by multiple nations as a standard issue military boot during WWII. This edition sees the Service Boot decked out in a beautiful, Anise Janus Calf Suede tannage.
C.F. Stead’s Janus Calf Suede is some of the best suede on the market. It’s a full-grain, aniline reverse leather with a fine, silky lustre. For all its elegance, it remains exceptionally hardy and water resistant. The anise tannage has rich, golden tobacco hues that pair perfectly with a brown Ridgeway sole. True to its military origins, Viberg’s Service Boot uses a stitchdown construction. This time-consuming method of joining upper to sole prevents water and mud from seeping through to the boot’s interior. Built around Viberg’s 1035 last: a classic round-toe shape in an accommodating E width.
Viberg boots are the end result of numerous hand-finished processes - from the tanning of the rare leathers to the free-hand trimming of the soles. They undergo strict quality inspections at Viberg's Victoria workshop and upon arrival here at Rivet & Hide. Any slight variations in colour and texture should therefore be considered a part of the Service Boot’s unique character.
All boots ship with dust bags and a polishing cloth.
NB: The size you order will be the size stamped in the boots. Viberg fits more closely to UK rather than US sizing so please take this into account when making your choice. If you need any assistance with sizing, please reach out to us via email, we are always happy to help.
